The Alchemist (Portuguese: O Alquimista) is a bestseller that was first
published in Brazil in 1988 and is the most famous work of author Paulo
Coelho. It is a symbolic story that urges its readers to follow their


The Manual of the Warrior of Light:

each of us is a warrior of light. Each of us is capable of listening to
the silence of the heart, of accepting failure without letting it get
us down and of holding onto hope even in the face of weariness and
depression. Values like love for all things, discipline, friendship and
learning to listen to our own hearts are the arms with which this
warrior confronts the battles we face in the name of personal growth
and in the defence of the light. On every page there is an
inspirational thought, which can be read as part of Paulo Coelho's
whole philosophy or used form the basis of a daily meditation. This
text is a guide to the process.

The Manual of the Warrior of Light is a 1997
collection of Paulo Coelho's teachings summed up into one volume. It
includes proverbs, extracts from the Tao Te Ching, the Bible, the book
of Chuang Tzu, the Talmud and various other sources, and is written in
the form of short philosophical passages.

The witch of Portobello:

Charting the disappearance of Athena, the novel is pieced together
through interviews with those who knew her well, her friends, lovers,
parents and those acquaintances who hardly knew her at all, weaving
through Romania and Beirut to London, where her life takes a dramatic

The Zahir :

Zahir is Arabic means visible, present, incapable of going
unnoticed. It is someone or something which once we have come into
contact with them or it, graudally occupies our very thought, until we
can think of nothing else. This can be considered either a state of
holiness or of madness."

The story is extremely autobiographical but is intended as a work of fiction.

The Devil and Miss Prym

An intriguing story of how Devil tries to fight against the Angels of a normal human being, i.e. a small town girl trying to make big in life through the common good+bad means available to the horizon of a normal human mind.

Paulo Coelho is at his simplistic best in this piece of work.

The Fifth Mountain

A book which oscillates between themes of love and war. A common man on the edge of being a prophet's man - Elijah - how he copes up the tug of war between his national+spiritual duty, love of his life and the call of humanity.

Paulo Coelho again delivers top notch work here.
